Anyone having an issue with the lynch pins falling out when disconnected?
its happened to me twice on the drivers side now. I don’t understand how it’s happening. The first time I thought it was operator error. But the second time? What gives? I’ll try putting a zip tie on it. I have no issue when it’s connected, but it vibrates loose when disconnected. just curios to know if anyone else has the issue.

Can you post a pic of how you have them pinned up when disconnected? I haven't had problems with my pins coming out.

I’ll get one in the next day or so here. I insert the pin from the top and it’s only happened on the drivers side. It’s weird.

The pins are directional, when you flip the hoop over you should feel a click. If not, spin the pin around 180 degrees so the the bump at the top of the pin is sticking out and try again.

I am careful to place the pin in the. Correct orientation.
